consumer support for physicians use of electronic of records. i think it has the potential to be a game changer for them. their expectations are now beginning to change, too, in this transition phase. we saw that only a fairly small percentage of consumers have on- line access to their medical records. it is about 26% of people who also had said in ehr. for those that did, their views were very different and their experiences were very different. there were more engaged in their care and more motivated to do something to improve their care and they felt more confident in their clinician's ability to manage their care with them and began to really set up more of a partnership constructs. it will be very interesting to see end stage 2, where the requirement will be applicable -- applicable the chicken go on line and you can download and you can transmit and i think that will be interesting. from the consumer viewpoint, we are at a point where they are experiencing some tangible benefits. it is early in the program and that is fabulous. i think what is about to happen will the transformati

me here today. transparency is something that is really important to us. we think the current debate is lacking good data about the volume and nature of government requests which we think would help inform the broader debate about updating. there's no question that government has legitimate interests in this data and legitimate needs. we also think our users in the broader public could benefit from good data about the nature and types of requests we receive. the types of data that we respond -- that we return in response and how we push back is important. there is a percentage of times where we will not give any date in response to a government request. we released the first iteration of our transparency report in 2010. since then, we have seen a significant increase in the number of government requests that we received from governmental entities in the united states. since 2010, we have seen a 136% increase in requests. with the latest iteration of our transparency report, about five days after we released the report, we published a detailed user faq so our users in the broader publ
